18.10.2018Transit Network Planning Event
On 18 October 2018, Infrastructure Victoria published its infrastructure advice to government on automated and zero emissions vehicles, which was the culmination of extensive research, analysis and consultation. Through the advice Infrastructure Victoria has called on the Victorian Government to enable the roll-out of driverless and zero emissions vehicles to reap unprecedented benefits for the economy, community, and environment. A total of 17 recommendations have been made, which were tested against the context of seven possible scenarios for the future and key triggers for action. The Committee was actively involved in this initiative; co-hosting a members workshop on 20 February 2018 with Infrastructure Victoria to identify and discuss infrastructure requirements for the successful roll-out of automated and zero emission vehicles. The ideas formulated at the workshop formed the basis of the Committee’s submission to Infrastructure Victoria.
